About Love Voltaire Us Apart:
“One day soon you will meet a man, and he will rise like a phoenix from the ashes, and it is my greatest hope that he will not give you syphilis.” Friedrich Nietzsche
What would Kant’s sexts look like? How would Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir break up? What would Confucius think of Tinder?
Comedy writer Julia Edelman’s New Yorker article ‘Excerpts from Philosophers Breakup Letters’ was a viral hit in 2015. From that same font of wisdom comes a hilarious spoof relationship guide with a philosophical edge.
Including essential information in chapters like “Getting (Meta)physical” and “5 Ways To Know Your Man is Writing a Manifesto” – which gives the advice you need to avoid losing a relationship to revolution – Love Voltaire Us Apartis funny, smart, refreshingly original, and brought to life with charming illustrations from Hallie Bateman.Buy tickets/get more info now
